Barnes' favourite watering hole.Overlooking the famous Barnes village pond, The Sun Inn is a gem of pub serving fresh, tasty pub food, in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. We also pour a blimmin' great pint of locally brewed real ale and equally tasty Belgian beer. And being near to the banks of Old Father Thames, we're perfectly located for a spot of Pimm's o'clock during the boat race in April.

This is a beautiful old pub, with authentic and comfortable decor and furniture. It faces barnes green and pond, and has seating inside and outside, at the front and back. The food has varied over the years, but the place has such a great location and vibe you just have to go there.

Chose this as a convenient place to meet up with an old friend. Setting is good, by the pond watching the swans hold up the traffic! Nice outside area with plenty of seating AND a car park - not easy in Barnes. Food selection was fairly good, but not enough salads and what they did have were a bit pricey.... More

Come here for a Sunday roast or just for pint of amazing Frulli beer. The staff is super friendly, there's lots of room inside as well: in good weather there are tables outside in front of the pub overlooking the pond across the road and there's alos plenty of room inside and onto the backyard. Pets friendly. Come here with... More

This pub has prime position in one of the most affluent suburbs of London with an enviable position near the pond near £2m homes but the quality of service and food couldn't be further removed from the standards one could expect from such a pub. I visited the pub recently and ordered a burger - when it arrived it was... More

It is interesting reading the other reviews on here, because if I had one criticism of The Sun Inn is that the bar is very often understaffed. There was one occasion on a Friday night when there was literally nobody at the bar for a couple of minutes. However, the place does have character and is good to go to... More

"What's the table number" - sorry I don't know, I don't work here, it's on the left of the door. "I need the number" - no sale !!!!!! If you hate tending bar that much why work in a pub!

Shocking. Did the 2 courses for £10 starter was ok. Main course sausage and mash sausages were extremely bad quality, mash had been microwaved to death and was watery. Gravy was good though. My girlfriend had mac and cheese with a garlic focaccia brick, they had heated the bread in a microwave and it had become so solid it could... More
